Qantas and Airbus have finalised a contract for 110 A320 Family aircraft.

The firm order for 78 A320neo and 32 A320s is the largest single order in Australian aviation history by aircraft units and follows a commitment signed in August.

The new aircraft will be deployed across the Qantas Group on short to medium haul domestic and international operations.

“The Airbus A320 will be the launch aircraft for Qantas' new, premium airline based in Asia and will support Jetstar’s expansion plans - including the establishment of Jetstar Japan,” said Alan Joyce, Qantas CEO. “The A320 Family’s outstanding operational efficiency and comfort, plus its environmental credentials, make it the right choice for the Qantas Group.”

The A320neo is a new engine option for the A320 Family that will enter service in 2015. It incorporates latest generation engines and large Sharklet wing tip devices, which Airbus says will together deliver 15% in fuel and CO2 emission savings.

 The A320neo has over 95% airframe commonality with the existing A320 models while offering up to 500 nautical miles (950 kilometres) more range or two tonnes more payload. It is offered with engines from CFM International’s LEAP-X or Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower PW1100G. Qantas has not yet unveiled its engine decision.
